Fishing

Saltwater fishing is always a popular pastime in the bay. There are several spots along the river for fishing. The Estero River is brackish with snook, mullet, redfish and other popular game fish. Freshwater fishing is also popular in the river. Freshwater bass can be found as you paddle inland away from the Gulf. The Estero Bay is located about three miles by canoe down the river. It offers abundant saltwater fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities. The bay is home to bottlenose dolphins, West Indian manatees and several game fish.
